I’m back! – A Master List of Book Releases of June and July + Reviews!

Featured

It has been a long hiatus, though to me it didn't seem to be one. Time flies. June and July have flied by so fast, and I can't keep up, shit things happening one after the other, and I'm still coping... But it's a process. I'm functioning now enough to write and interact on this blog. As I promised, this first post is a list of June releases (from June 3rd) and the reviews I found about them until now. You're all welcome to let me know if you have a review that I forgot to add. Since July is also over, I'm also sharing this month's books and reviews. Welcome back on Swift Coffee, everyone!

‘The Greek Persuasion’ by Kimberly K. Robeson

A book that made me want to sit out in the sun, watching the sea and drinking my coffee in complete peace and satisfaction.  Well, too bad that while reading it (a couple of weeks before this post is airing) I was in the middle of a move from a temporarily very grey and rainy middle European country to...well, another temporarily very grey and rainy European country. And unfortunately, as I was very busy, I had to read this book taking small parts at a time, over more than a week. I have to admit that it didn't help a lot with completely enjoying the story... I still found it very interesting, atmospheric, and I found myself drawn in again and again - and that probably means a lot. Let's see what 'The Greek Persuasion' is about!
